NeMLA Annual Convention - Baltimore, MD - 10-13 March, 2022

 

How does one resist the systems of subjugation that prey on the marginalized and seek to dissolve and consume them within this white supremacist capitalist imperialist patriarchy? While for some resistance takes the form of confrontation and battle, for Black feminist thinkers like bell hooks and Audre Lorde, resistance comes in the form of the practice of love. It is in the embrace of the erotic, of initiating the quest of mutual self-fulfillment, in seeking value in the relationships we have with each other, that we resist. In other words, for hooks and Lorde, we resist through care.

 

When Poets Write About Poets: Representation(s) of the Poet and Poetry in Poetic Works (NeMLA 2022 - Panel)

From the very first traces of written poetry, poets have been inspired by their peers: whether with elegies, odes or allusions to the poets they admired, they have always incorporated figures of poets and other poetic texts in their own poems. Intertextuality abound from the classical texts (quotations, sources and models) by earlier poets, for instance Ovid, Virgil or Cato. Some of their contemporaries, like Tacitus, have questioned the ideologies of their predecessors. Closer to us, Milton in his 16-line “On Shakespeare” (1630) argues that no monument is a suitable tribute to Shakespeare’s oeuvre; Thomas Gray pays himself homage to Milton in “Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard” (1751).

NeMLA 2022: Video games and the literary

updated: 
Thursday, June 10, 2021 - 9:27pm
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

This panel will explore the many existing and potential connections between video games and the literary world. Many leading games have explicitly referred to works of literature, either within their storyworlds or in their marketing (for instance, Bioshock’s interactive rebuttal of Ayn Rand’s ideas). More broadly, emerging video game theory has often defined itself either by analogy or by opposition to existing concepts from literary theory. Book genres such as the choose-your-own adventure format (eg. Steve Jackson’s Sorcery! series) have also anticipated video gaming, and in turn been remastered as games using the same text and narrative structure.
